Default high pockets

What would you do in this situation?? Okay, I'm playing on Noble in their dirty dozen sit and go and there are 5 people left. Top 4 get money and if you are in the top 2 4 times consecutively or something like that you get a ton of money. I am 3'rd out of the 5 and I get pocket Jacks. I have around 1800 chips with the table average being about 2200 and blinds at 150-300. I have the dealer button and 1 person calls and I call and the small blind folds and the big blind raises 300. The 1 person calls and so do I. The flop comes:

The guy that wasn't in the blinds checks and the big blind raises 300 so if I call, I am down to 900 chips, since I have top pair and don't want the other 2 to fish the flush draw, I push it all in. The big blind ends up calling and flips over pocket 10's. Turn comes:

Dang, I still had a chance cuz I had the Jack of spades but a spade did not show. Did I play this hand wrong? Should I have pushed it pre-flop or raised at least? I figure the guy with pocket 10's still would have called though, and even if I just called the 300 after the flop, he still would have hit the 10 and probably pushed. Seen as I put in half my chips already and still had top pair, I woudln't have been able to fold even though there was a flush draw.

So... did I play that wrong or was it just bad luck for me? Should I have maybe folded pre-flop knowing that he raised and maybe had higher pockets or 2 over-cards and there was someone else in the hand too?

How do you play semi-high pockets?
